Time for Gold Companies to HODL, and a Look at the Crypto Landscape

* Gold has been around for centuries. Known for its safe-haven properties, it is a well-regarded asset across the globe. In this presentation, Frank Holmes will review the common drivers of the yellow metal, and how trends have changed in this space since the start of the coronavirus.

* Frank will also touch on his favorite companies in the gold industry – precious metal royalty and streaming names. Hear why Frank believes names like Franco Nevada, Wheaton Precious Metals and Royal Gold are worth “HODL-ing” in a portfolio.

* Lastly, the presentation will touch on Bitcoin and whether this could be seen as the “new, digital gold.” Frank believes gold and Bitcoin are inclusive, not exclusive. Find out why.

How Values Drive Value - Exploring the Heart of ESG

The notion of value is changing. Historically, it’s been largely defined in financial terms, and more narrowly in respect to shareholder return. We are now compelled to ask ‘value to whom?’, and account for non-financial elements upon which business relies.
In this respect, many companies are setting ambitious corporate goals and commitments that relate to climate change, biodiversity impacts, and community engagement. Taking a boots to boardroom approach, this panel will discuss how to operationalize these issues and share practical, real-world approaches that contribute to building strong ESG credentials across an organization.
Value creation takes time, while it’s erosion can be extremely fast. A company that seeks to lead in the future must be clear on its own values, and how it will deliver long-term value for all stakeholders. This sits at the heart of ESG.
